Today we honor a folk hero—and the heroes we work with every day. Ethan Allen was a soldier and a statesman who led the charge to capture Fort Ticonderoga from the British during the American Revolution. Because he’s our namesake, we pause on June 23 (Ethan Allen Day in Vermont) to remember the contributions this patriot made to our nation and our democracy. Ethan Allen Day is also an opportunity to give a shout-out to the hundreds of hardworking people who keep our company humming. From the skilled craftsmen and women in Vermont and North Carolina who create our furniture, to the design consultants all over the world who help our customers make beautiful homes, we’d be nowhere without them! Meet some of them here … and more at #WeAreEthanAllen.   [caption id="attachment_10573" align="aligncenter" width="728"] Farooq Kathwari, Chairman, President & CEO, Danbury, CT World Headquarters[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10576" align="aligncenter" width="728"] Jerry, Pine Valley, NC Workshop[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10577" align="aligncenter" width="720"] Bermudez, Silao, Mexico Workshop[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10578" align="aligncenter" width="724"] Derrick, Maiden, NC Workshop[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10595" align="aligncenter" width="723"] Tad, Fort Lauderdale, FL Design Center[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10604" align="aligncenter" width="722"] Karen, Danbury, CT World Headquarters[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10612" align="aligncenter" width="721"] Alec, New Milford, CT Photo Studio[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10579" align="aligncenter" width="721"] Shawn, Orleans, VT Workshop[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10592" align="aligncenter" width="717"] Dominic & Yaminah, 915 Broadway, NYC Design Center[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10580" align="aligncenter" width="725"] Josh, Orleans, VT Workshop[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10581" align="aligncenter" width="725"] Janusz, Passaic, NJ Workshop[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10605" align="aligncenter" width="724"] Janet, Austin, TX Design Center[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10582" align="aligncenter" width="727"] Dave, Orleans, VT Workshop[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_10613" align="aligncenter" width="726"] Nathan, Plymouth, MA Design Center[/caption]
